While our resort continues to be Aruba's only 100% Adults-only sanctuary, for a growing number of couples, we are learning that nine months after their visit, they are delivering a bundle of joy. To celebrate, Bucuti & Tara has launched #BucutiBabies and recently reached out to past guests to see who have added to their family since their stay. The replies are pouring in from around the world with each photo accompanying special, loving stories resulting from their honeymoons and vacations at Tripadvisor’s No. 1 Hotel for Romance in the Caribbean.
Beaming with joy
"As Tripadvisor’s No. 1 Hotel for Romance in the Caribbean for the seventh straight year, Bucuti & Tara knows exactly how to care for couples. With our focus on being adults-only, it was only recently that we started to learn that there were resulting Bucuti Babies as we now call them, born around nine months after their parents’ romantic vacation here,” shares Ewald Biemans, Owner/CEO of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, Aruba. “It has been so touching seeing their beautiful pictures and stories and realizing how Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort has become such a special place for many."
Bucuti & Tara delightedly shares some of these special stories with the permission of the contributors. Those wishing to join the growing #BucutiBabies baby book are invited to submit a picture of their little one and story to email@example.com.
"My husband and I were married on August 8, 2021 in our US-home state of Maryland and stayed at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort from August 15-20 for our honeymoon. We enjoyed everything and each other. Everything was perfect. When we got home, we excitedly told our family and friends that we couldn't wait to return for our first wedding anniversary. However, a few weeks later, we found out we were pregnant with our first baby with a due date May 7, 2022. Our Bucuti baby Beckham came into the world on April 28, 2022, and we are so in love with our beautiful son! Thank you for this special honeymoon,” shares Erika Howard.
"Our story may be a little different than expected, but I think it's worth sharing. After almost two years of trying, we were finally able to get pregnant. Nine to ten weeks later we received the news that no expectant parent wants to hear, ‘We're sorry, there is no heartbeat and we have lost the baby.’ It was terrible for both of us to hear this. This all happened in the middle of the Corona crisis in September 2020. We knew we desperately needed a vacation to relax and unwind. The only place that came to mind that could give us that feeling was Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, where we had celebrated our honeymoon. I didn't realize until we walked in to check in how badly my wife needed to reset this trip. She started crying tears of happiness. I asked her what was going on and she said she was so happy to be back in Bucuti. Bucuti & Tara was exactly what we needed to reset. A little over two months later, our daughter Myla was on the way. She is now nine months old and we couldn’t be happier,” shares Kevin Davis.
"My husband and I honeymooned at Bucuti & Tara in August 2018 and welcomed our baby girl in May 2019! Exactly nine months after our honeymoon! We had a wonderful time together and we still talk about how Bucuti was our favorite vacation spot ever. We hope to return to Bucuti for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our Bucuti baby Emersyn was born on May 11, 2019, and is now a big sister to her 5-month-old brother!" says Michele Breckel.
"I am always happy when I receive Bucuti news because it reminds me of our unforgettable honeymoon in 2013. Thanks to this special trip, our daughter Isabella came into our lives. A daughter is someone you laugh with, dream with and love with all your heart. We are very grateful to you for this and hope to come back to Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort one day,” share Ana Maria Moreno and Oscar Mauricio Lopez Bogota, Colombia.
Hello! We saw another family share a similar story and it inspired us to share ours too.
In September 2019, my husband and I lost our first pregnancy, followed by his mother's loss to cancer a few days later. She passed away the day before our wedding anniversary. As you can imagine, we were heartbroken and overwhelmed. A month prior, we had postponed our vacation to celebrate my 30th birthday so we could take care of my mother-in-law and be there with her in her time of need. We were in desperate need of taking a break from everything. When we thought about our happy place, and somewhere that would allow us to disconnect and recharge, Bucuti & Tara came to mind immediately. We spent our honeymoon there in September 2016 and always remembered it with fond memories. We reserved our rooms, booked our flights, and off we were! Bucuti & Tara allowed us to be kind to ourselves and smile again. Three months later, we found out we were pregnant with our son, Miles. He is now two years old and a thriving toddler. We will never forget how Bucuti & Tara was there for us during one of the darkest moments of our lives.
Every honeymooning or vacationing couple is assigned a romance concierge upon making their reservation. This gives them plenty of time to plan the perfect romantic getaway blending relaxation, adventure, and memories of a lifetime. Nestled on a dreamy stretch of world-famous Eagle Beach, powdery white sand is kissed by turquoise water as palm trees dance with the sea breeze. Even Aruba’s earliest visitors, Leatherback sea turtles, have picked Bucuti & Tara’s beach each year to lay their eggs.
